Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 8:00 pm

The Theater at the School of Drama 151 Bank Street, New York, NY 10014

The New School College of Performing Arts – School of Drama MFA Classics Studio Series presents Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, directed by Alexandru Mihail.

Viola and Sebastian, twins separated by a shipwreck, experience loss and love on the shore of Illyria. Disguised as Cesario, page to the lovesick Duke Orsino, Viola searches for her lost brother, while the Countess Olivia mourns the loss of her own. When the Countess meets the handsome young page, desire replaces grief – along with a case of mistaken identity. Throw in the magic foolery of the jester, Feste, the raucous antics of courtiers Sir Toby, Maria, and Sir Andrew, and the madness of the high-strung puritan Malvolio, and Shakespeare creates a bitter-sweet tale of laughter and longing, dark humor, and above all, maddening, harrowing love.

February 16-18, 2017
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday matinee at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets available beginning January 23, 2017.
